It's the First Challenge of the Year -- in Australia!

Happy New Year's Eve to all my Northern Hemisphere friends! In Australia, it's already 2019, and the first challenge for Happy Little Stampers is up and running! I am joining the Watercolour team (I love that spelling) for the next six months.

Today I am sharing a card using images from the Picket Fence Studios December release called Forgot To Say Thank You. It features a beautiful jar of flowers with three sentiments.
I stamped my image on watercolor paper, and then used an aqua brush and my Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints to color. Once it was dry, I painted the entire bouquet with the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter pen for lots of sparkle and added texture! While the photo doesn't pick that up, it's so sparkly IRL!

Our {challenge on HLS} is all about watercolour - Anything Goes - and for an added twist (optional), add texture! Come play!
Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve! And to my Australian friends - HAPPY NEW YEAR!
